The Impossible Job

Take a look at this beautiful replacement conservatory, designed and installed by 1st Homes.

replacement conservatory

Built in the 1970s, this unique conservatory was full of history, housed delicate plants, and had been adored for generations. Unfortunately, the building had begun to rot and would need expertise to replace it whilst keeping its originality. The delicate nature of the plants would also require skilled hands and extra care, whilst building something durable and long lasting to continue to house them. Of course, we here at 1st Homes cannot resist a challenge, so we were more than happy to help!

This customer was “apprehensive at the beginning and wondered if it would ever be restored to its former glory”. However, we understood that this exciting project had to be carefully planned and executed. Each part of the conservatory had to be built in stages, with each stage being measured meticulously before designing the next. All of these stages took time, hard work and the care of everyone involved to bring this “beautiful new conservatory” to life.

The end result? A contemporary conservatory with all the charm of the original building. The customer was delighted, commenting “I am absolutely thrilled with the result” and that their new building is “light, clean and airy and, more than anything, it’s now safe too”.

Energy Efficient 

The customers that we have recently designed a replacement conservatory for will benefit from a more thermally efficient space. Like all of our conservatories, this project was designed with insulating corner columns and thick double or triple glazed windows, as well as an energy efficient roof system. Our heat retaining designs will result in less energy needed to warm your home, potentially saving you money on your heating bills. With rising heating costs, it’s never been so important to ensure that your home is energy efficient. 

An energy efficient home can help the planet too. These customers will be contributing to reducing the carbon footprint of local homeowners and working together to create a greener world. 

Secure & Durable

Keep your home safe and secure all year round, just like our recent conservatory customers. You too can benefit from multipoint locking systems and a new conservatory built with durable, long lasting materials. 

Enjoy a low maintenance conservatory that lasts a lifetime. Thanks to our modern roofline design, you won’t have to worry about damp or rotting. Much like the customers in our case study above, you can ensure that even older, more traditional conservatories keep their integrity in the process.

Bespoke Conservatories and Styles 

We design and install bespoke conservatories to suit the requirements of you and your property. We can merge two of our existing styles for larger spaces, or design a unique replacement, such as in our case study above. 


For a more traditional look, a Victorian style conservatory is the perfect fit. Victorian conservatories have a unique, multi faceted build and allow plenty of light into your home.


Edwardian conservatories are rectangular, making them easily furnishable. This conservatory style can be used however you like, as they make brilliant lounges, dining rooms and home offices.


A sleek and simple aesthetic is what characterises a lean-to conservatory. Designed with a single pitched roof elevation, this style of conservatory makes the perfect addition to even the most modestly sized homes. 


The gable-end style of conservatory is built to compliment larger homes. These conservatories are designed as steeper to deliver a grand visual.
